Our Family Caregiver Education Series is available to any member of the community who is currently engaging as a caregiver to a loved one living with a terminal diagnosis or a disabling chronic condition, regardless of whether your loved one is a Hope Hospice patient.
The 12-class series covers a variety of topics and provides training, education, support, and resources relevant to family caregivers. Plus, much like a support group, these classes provide an opportunity to connect with others who have shared experiences.
Classes take place on one Saturday per month. Coffee and light refreshments are available at 9:45 a.m., and class is in session from 10 a.m. to noon. Classes and are held in the second-floor conference room at Hope Hospice and Home Health located at 6377 Clark Avenue in Dublin, California 94568. Click here for directions.
Classes are offered to the community for free, though donations are greatly appreciated and help us offset the cost of running the program.
